Taylor Swift explains why she always looks flawless leaving the gym

Taylor Swift has become even more noteworthy as of late for looking absolutely incredible when leaving the gym. It’s a bit bizarre and I kinda don’t understand it how someone leaves the place where they’ve presumably just sweat their ass off looking as though they’ve actually come from a salon. So how does she do it?

Check out her interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers for some insight:

Taylor Swift looks stunning at ‘The Giver’ NYC premiere

Taylor Swift took the music world by storm long ago, but now she’s set her sights on the film world, as well. She has a part in the upcoming film release of The Giver, and showed up at the NYC premiere yesterday looking absolutely stunning. However you feel about TSwift, you must admit, she’s a lovely girl who knows how to dress.

I’m not sure what’s happening with Katie Holmes’ outfit, unfortunately, but Taylor’s dress and makeup are flawless.

Taylor Swift gives love advice to heartbroken fan

If there’s one thing Taylor Swift knows all about, it’s love. She might not be very good at it, but she’s had her share of relationships, some more successful than others, and she wants to share the wisdom she’s gained with her adoring fans. That’s why when one girl took to Instagram to express her longing for the boy across the street, TaySwift dropped some serious knowledge on her ass and told her just what to do.

Here’s what Instagram user sherbetswift wrote:

There’s a guy Taylor, a guy who’s sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said that I was ‘like’ his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and he’ll never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and she’s pretty and has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who will never like me back. @taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you. Hannah ??

And here’s our girl Taylor’s response:

Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.

I mean, it’s all very cheesy, but you know how everything seemed like the end of the world when you were a teenager, and when you had a crush on someone who didn’t like you back, it was pretty much the worst thing ever, so I feel bad for the kid. Also, it was really, really nice for TSwift to step up and actually respond to this girl. As a celebrity who probably gets a million questions/tags a day, it’s probably not easy to get to everyone, and I think it’s really sweet that she took the time out.

Is Taylor Swift our generation’s Michael Jackson?

MTV EMA's - VIP Glamour Area

Taylor Swift is a much-celebrated musician. Despite her young age, she’s written tons of songs, performed to sold-out crowds all over the world, made millions upon millions of dollars, etc. People love her, as well – she’s grown up in the spotlight without becoming a hot ass mess (at least not in any obvious ways).

Turns out, even people in the industry think she’s the bee’s knees. Take fun. lead guitarist Jack Antonoff (that’s the yahoo in the red hat in the photo above), who’s worked with Taylor before and can’t get enough. So much so that he believes she’s this generation’s Michael Jackson. Uhhhh… stop the press.

From GQ:

“I think Taylor Swift is one of the best songwriters ever,” Antonoff said.

“Taylor Swift is cool, because she’s the closest thing today that hearkens to Michael Jackson — to great, great pop music. There’s a difference between her and Gaga and Katy Perry and Lily Allen and all that. It all feels throwaway, comparatively.”

So, is Jack trying to bone, or what? It all seems a liiiiittle too enthusiastic for me. I like Taylor, and I think she makes decent pop music, but comparing her to Michael Jackson is WAY premature. Let’s all take it down several notches, shall we?

Taylor Swift will never give you anything for free

taylor swift wall street journal

Taylor Swift wrote a lengthy op-ed for the Wall Street Journal in which she pontificated on the state of the music industry, declining record sales and her thoughts on how artists approach their careers. All I got from reading it is that TaySwift will never give you shit for free and you will always have to pay up, because she’s worth it.

Before I tell you my thoughts on the matter, you should know that you’re reading the opinion of an enthusiastic optimist: one of the few living souls in the music industry who still believes that the music industry is not dying…it’s just coming alive.

There are many (many) people who predict the downfall of music sales and the irrelevancy of the album as an economic entity. I am not one of them. In my opinion, the value of an album is, and will continue to be, based on the amount of heart and soul an artist has bled into a body of work, and the financial value that artists (and their labels) place on their music when it goes out into the marketplace. Piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically, and every artist has handled this blow differently.

In recent years, you’ve probably read the articles about major recording artists who have decided to practically give their music away, for this promotion or that exclusive deal. My hope for the future, not just in the music industry, but in every young girl I meet…is that they all realize their worth and ask for it.

Music is art, and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It’s my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album’s price point is. I hope they don’t underestimate themselves or undervalue their art.

This article does go on from there (and on and on…) and she waffles on about how much she loves her fans, comparing her relationship with them to an open romantic relationship and explaining how much heart and soul she puts into each of her albums. Look, T – you’ve got me. I’m convinced. You’re the real deal, a true singer-songwriter and the world loves you. I don’t need any more convincing.

On the other hand, I do get what she means in terms of female artists – and all artists, really – demanding what they’re worth. No one wants to work for free, and even artists want/need to make a living. However, I also don’t think anyone NEEDS $80 million. Ever. It’s just not necessary. There’s a difference between demanding what you’re worth and being greedy, but given that that’s the going rate of celebrity, I guess she’s within her rights.

Taylor Swift had a star-studded 4th of July weekend

taylor swift slip n slide

Taylor Swift has a massive Rhode Island mansion, so it’s only natural that it’d serve as the location of her celebrity-filled 4th of July celebration over the weekend. Taylor hosted a slew of celeb friends, from Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield to the awful (and puzzlingly out of place) Lena Dunham, among others. Jaime King and Jessica Szohr were there, too, as was Ingrid Michaelson. And of course, it was all documented on Instagram.

Because I’m currently in the UK, I missed out on my Independence Day celebrations. And by “celebrations”, I mean “BBQ” because I love shit cooked on a grill. Hot dogs aren’t really a big thing over here, and that saddens me greatly. I suppose I’ll have to live vicariously through TSwift for now.
